De La Warr Pavilion has announced a series of Queer Life Drawing Conversations led by artist Miles Coote starting Saturday, March 25.

No art experience necessary but this will be a safe space to be involved in discussions around LGBTQ+ topics. The first session will feature trans-artist Angelo Madsen Minax who will be leading the chats during posing about being a trans artist and his personal experiences.

These sessions will focus on three different themes with different sitters: Horticulture, the environment and queer cooperatives, queer identities surrounding sex and sexual health, and a focus on the art of Angelo Madsen Minax and Miles Coote.

A focus on the art of Angelo Madsen Minax and Miles Coote: Saturday, March 25 from 4.30 ‚Äď 6pm

An online Zoom session and hybrid event in conversation with Angelo Madsdn Minax and Miles Coote. This is a queer intervention of the format of Angelo’s current exhibition, which will aim to intimately explore both artists’ practices through queer life drawing and conversations.

Queer identities surrounding sex and sexual health and the Bareback Museum: Saturday, April 29¬†from 4.30 ‚Äď 6pm

In 2020 PrEP was made available for free by the NHS to prevent the infection of HIV. This session will focus on conversations about sexual health scripts within the LGBTQ+ community since the introduction of PrEP and will invite Anthony Gifford (PhD candidate and retired dancer) to model for this session and to discuss his research on the psychosocial influences on the decision to take PrEP.

Horticulture, the environment and queer cooperatives: Saturday, May 13¬†from 4.30 ‚Äď 6pm

The final session, with Councillor Claire Carr of the Green Party modelling. will explore environmental activism in relation to queer bodies, exploring a conversation about embodiment as a methodology for environmental change: drawing on histories of queer organising, queer cooperatives and connections with the environment and horticulture.
